I use a program called Sougou, which is very poopular in China I think. Sometimes I use the Microsoft pinyin language option.
Sougou is very good at guessing my characters based on context, but sometimes I have to click through to find my character, especially when it's character with ü it seems.
Is there a standard rule here? Should ü always be replaced with v in pinyin programs?
What about after the J, Q, X and Y letters where ü is always implied, should I be hitting V or U on my keyboard?
Sorry for the simplistic question, I wish I could understand the sougou documentation, but it's still "chinese" to me. Thank you.
